Fame and Fortune (Annotated & Illustrated): The Progress of Richard Hunter (Ragged Dick) Reviews
The quality of this book is very poor. The font is very small and the print is very light, making it impossible to read. The one star rating doesn't reflect the content of the book. Do not purchase unless you want to strain your eyes.
Fame and Fortune is a charming continuation of Alger's best-known book, "Ragged Dick." It furthers the story of Richard Hunter, now a bookkeeper for a wealthy merchant, and Henry Fosdick, a clerk in a hat and cap store and tutor of Dick. The story is one of adventures (learning to interact with people at his boarding house, attending Ida Greyson's party, acquiring real estate,) and misadventures (with his enemies, Rosewell Crawford and Micky Maguire). This book is just as good as Ragged Dick and the third in the series, "Mark the Matchboy," and it's too bad it's not more readily available to the public.
I don't have much to add, except to note that Horatio Alger fans with a Kindle can get 57 of his novels for something like four bucks. :-)
